When you think about things in those ways, you have a different picture of this whole fiasco.
Editor's Note: You make good points on your blogs. But, I think the main point is that the NFL rules are very weak. I mean there is a consensus that what the Pats did was a big problem for the game. Even the Commish. says that. But, when you get down into the weeds of comparing what Belichick did against the rules, well it's not so clear he made more than a technical violation of the rules.
So, I think the rules need to be clarified and toughened up. More to come on this.
